The Ocean Blue (Album Release Show)

July 26
8 p.m.
DJ, Electro Pop, Indie Pop, Indie Rock

When its members were still teens, the Ocean Blue emerged from Hershey 30 years ago with a shimmery, dream pop sound more English than Pennsylvanian and quickly became college radio/MTV stars with hits like “Between Something and Nothing” and “Drifting, Falling.” Six years after their last album, TOB is back with Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves, which glistens with the band’s trademark rich melodies, jangly guitars, and drifting synths, as well as David Schelzel’s brooding vocals, while his lyrics consider love and death. This will be a hometown gig for Schelzel, now also Wayzata’s city attorney. Local neo-new wavers Graveyard Club will also showcase their new album, Goodnight Paradise.
